"My life after June 1, will be my
own private affair, and it will be a
relief in many respects." Mars
It certainly will.
According to a Honolulu ex
change, Jack Coney is slated for
Kauai's sheriff in the event that
Sheriff Rice resigns. Jack's work
in this capacity has been thorough
ly demonstrated during a previous
incumbency and no doubt he'll
be the next choice o f the people.
TheRE'u- likely be considerable
interest aroused over the selection
of a man to take the place of Rep.
Geo. Huddy, a member of the "big
four." but who, since his election,
has taken up Ins residence in Hilo
town. Wild rumors are becoming
rife, prominent names are being
shyly produced, and prospects
are very bright for anything but a
calm and peaceful campaign. As
to the fortunate individual, who
ever he may be, let us hope that
he will perform his duties as
zealously as did his predecessor
That none there are who will ask
more, he can rest assured.
Hon. C. A. Rice, Kauai's new
and first national committeeman is
to be congratulated on the fight he
put up against the bunch of poli
tical sore heads who would hesi
tate at nothing to down Kauai.
The Honolulu bunch has been de
feated so often in their attempt
to knife Kauai, that it is to won
der why they persist in making
asses of themselves. Its impos
sible to beat Rice, Coney & Co.,
and the opposing element would
gain more" ground by realizing this
fact and being good than allowing
themselves the humiliation of con
Mr. Rice's administration a s
Legislator on the whole, has been
practical, business-like and effect
ive, and has been one with which
no fair minded, enterprising and
progressive citizen could i..d
We predict for him, a fuure

It is gratifying to see the in
terest that many of the plantation
managers are taking in the coming
baseball series. Jack Myers, has
fitted the Kilauea team out com
pletely w i t h .uniforms, shoes,
balls, bats, in fact e-erything
necessary to start the team off in
tip-top shape. Manager Spalding
has not only done as much for the
K. A. C's, but has placed one
hundred dollars to the credit of the
team "to be used as incidentals."
Manager Ben Baldwin has backed
his team in a like manner.
The fact that the 12th. day of
May, the date of the opening of the
season, doesn't seem to have made
much of an impression on the Li
hue team, judging from the lack of
interest in practise games. If the
Lihue team wishes to follow the
proverbial "hind teat" style, there
is nothing more couducis'e to suc
cess in this attempt as the failure
to get out for practise. The Gar
den Island stands ready to kokua
any team that makes an effort to do
its best, but a bunch of loafers will
get all that's coming to them, re
gardless of who they are. At are
cent meeting of the directors of the
Association it was decided that a
Filipino team could not enter on
account of lack of financial back
ing. We would remind the mem
bers of the Lihue team, that these
same Filipinos and the Captain of
the Lihue team, were the only ones
who turned out for practise at the
Park Sunday. A little of the sport
ing spirit which brings the little
brown men out for practise, though
they were barred out, would do
some of our very self opinionated
experts a mighty lot of good. This
paper will tollerate nothing but
genuine sport, and will holler its
head off if it don't get satisfaction.
A writer in an unsigned com
munication to this paper, takes
exceptions to our attitude on
"Sunday labor," and imparts the
cheerful information that he has
it in h i s power to "choke us
out of existence w i t h i n 24
hours," and concludes by consign
ing us to a place where snow balls
are said to be out of season.
In regards t o paying our re
spects to His Satanic Majesty's
domain, we can see but little need
of such so long as we have such
a counterpart in the writer who
is so cowardly and infernally
good-for-nothing as to withhold
his signature. As to the choking,
etc., we will remind this babbling
boaster, as well as all others of his
kind, and mind, that any attempt
to carry out such a threat, will be
the sorriest move they ever made.
To choke The Garden island is
possible, but its death groans will
take wings to many parts of the
globe, and intermingled with these
groans, will stand in bold relief,
a life history of such men as our
writer appears to be.
In our recent article we simply
quoted the Sunday Law, and men
tioned the fact that reports had
been received indicating the non-
observance of such. Since the
receipt of the communication re
ferred to we have gone further in
t h e matter to satify personal
curiotisity. We have learned that
a plantation not far from Lihue
does not turn a wheel on Sundays
doesn't even irrigate yet it is
one of the most successful planta
tions on Kauai. By this, we do
not wish to be understood as ad
vocatmg the elimination ot any
necessary work to protect a crop.
What we do object to, (and
which according to law, are per
fectly justified in) is the deliberate
turning out of gangs on Sundays
for ordinary field work. A little
more practical Christianity and less
shouting is what the world needs
today, and Kauai is no exception.
The salary of the president is
$75,000 a year, that of the vice pre
sident is $12,000 a year. The cabi
net officers receive 512,000 a year
each except the secretary of state
who gets $8,000. The chief justice
gets $13,000 a year and each of the
associate justices get $12,500
